Sails of Fortune: another great and cheerful slot with plenty of features

Relax Gaming continues to deliver, and this slot, again, doesn’t disappoint me. After the releases of Book of 99 and Multiplier Odyssey, they could take it easy. But no! They continue to deliver.

I’m a great fan of Relax Gaming slots, particularly when they have the Buy a Bonus feature. You’re guaranteed to see fireworks and some massive wins!

The max win is capped at 25.000x and the maximum stake is 30, so it’s possible to land 750- grand at the most.


Number of paylines: Up to 7776 ways to win

RTP and variance: 96.17% main game and 96.65% free spins (Bonus Buy)

Maximum win: 25,000x

Betting range: $€0.10 – $€30

Bonus features: free spins, Buy a Bonus feature

Casino Hipster verdict: HOT! Not too tricky, but still original and distinct. Enormous win potential.

Gameplay and Features

It’s a 5-reel slot and works according to the win all ways mechanic. In the main game, you’ll enjoy 243 ways to win.

In the free spins, though, reels can have up to 6 symbols. That gets you a massive 7,776 ways to win (6x6x6x6x6=7,776).

The pirate themed-slot has a Male and a Female Pirate as the best paying symbols, followed by a Harpoon, a Bottle and a Dead Fish. A five-of-a-kind of Male Pirates gets you an 8x win.

The lows are the Clubs, Diamonds, Hearts and Spades.

Furthermore, we have the Mystery symbols and Scatters (Golden Keys) and the Treasure Chests.

Once you spin a Mystery symbol, it will walk from the right to the left. For each “walk”, you get a free re-spin. Only when no more Mystery symbols are left on the screen will the free re-spins end.

How do you win the free spins?

You win 8 free spins if you manage to land 3 Scatters.  Each additional Scatter gets you an extra free spin.

You can also buy the free spins with the Buy a bonus feature. It costs 70x the original stake, after which you’ll get a guaranteed 3 or more scatters in the next spin. 

The free spins – stacked mystery symbols

The free spins are where the action takes place.

The odds of landing a Mystery symbol improve significantly. What’s even better is that these become stacked.

It’s possible to get 3 or even 4 stacked mystery symbols, and you know it’s checkout time if these convert into the Male or Female pirate!

If you manage to land three Treasure chests, you’ll get 4 instead of 3 stacked mystery symbols afterwards. In addition, you gain an additional free spin.

If you land another three Treasure Chests, you get 5 instead of 4 stacked mystery symbols. Do it again, and you’ll see stacked mystery symbols of 6!

Indeed, if your screen is full of stacked mystery symbols of 6, you have 7,776 win ways.

A full screen of male Pirates gets you a 62.208x (7776×8=62208) win. Bear in mind, though, that the max win is capped at 25.000x.

The payout percentage (RTP) of Sails of Fortune is 96.17% to 96.65%

The RTP of the main game is 96.17% which is okay but not great.

If you choose to use the Bonus Buy feature to access the free spins, you benefit from a higher RTP of 96.65%.

The variance (volatility) of Sails of Fortune is high

The slot has a high variance, and that should not come as a surprise. The win potential is enormous thanks to those walking and stacked mystery symbols.
